Another World

Another World Released: 05/10/08 by Antony and the Johnsons

A 5 track mini album that’s the groups first release since the Mercury prize winning album ‘I Am a Bird Now’ which became a critical and commercial sensation in 2005 and landed on the best of 2005 lists internationally. On the environmentally conscious title track, ‘Another World’, describes a place that is disappearing. Antony’s inimitable voice, mesmerizing piano and intimate arrangements punctuate the ideas on the EP. ‘Shake That Devil’ showcases his bluesy wail and its drone is soon replaced with a driving vintage R&B beat that illustrates the lyrics’ ferocity. The EP’s cover is a startling portrait of Butoh co-founder and Japanese dance legend Kazuo Ohno taken by Pierre-Olivier Deschamps in 1984 at Paris Theatre Du Chatelet. Ohno is known for his playful and grotesque imagery and Butoh’s white body makeup. The EP precedes their forthcoming album, ‘The Crying Light,’ to be released in January.
